Is there anything better than fish and chips from the local takeaway shop on a warm summer’s night? We’re just gonna go ahead and say, no. And with that grand sweeping statement out there in the balmy summer air, here’s some of the best joints to pick your’s up over the coming months:
[Editor’s Note: This article has been updated with a bunch of new spots – Nov 2020]
Grand Lane Fish House
Tucked away on Grand Lane behind Barrack Street in the city might just be Perth’s best fish and chip joint. Their fish tacos are huge, and everything is super-well priced. Irresistible city lunch spot.

135 Barrack St, Perth
Woodlands Fish & Chips
What they lack in pizzazz Woodlands Fish and Chips more than make up for it with flavour and serving size. Always well-staffed with friendly faces to handle even the busiest nights, it’s a western suburbs fave for a reason.
Rosewood Ave, Woodlands
Clancy’s Fish Pub
Across all three locations in Freo, City Beach and Canning Bridge (and Dunsborough for our down south folk), Clancy’s have been keeping families well fed and watered for years. Freo and City Beach are great to take the kids, and there’s something happening every night of the week.

Canning Bridge, City Beach + Fremantle
The British Chippy
Given Perth’s strong ex-pat contingent, it’s no wonder The British Chippy is the favourite of many of our northern suburbs friends. They’ve got a few interesting options (battered burger, haggis anyone?) that’ll keep you coming, but its their commitment to the traditional British fish and chip that keeps ’em coming back.
Currambine Central, Currambine + Lukin Centre, Butler
The pride and joy of Spearwood, owner Jason knows his way around a fish and chip or two. Friendly local service combined with massive portions are worth driving for, and who can’t resist a little deep fried fetta cheese?

3/73 Phoenix Rd, Spearwood
Brighton Fish Supply
Mario & Phylis have been serving up quality local produce for three decades (!), with the man himself preparing the fish every day. Reasonably priced with plenty of extras, their fish selection is unreal.
22A Muriel Ave, Innaloo
Moolanda Fish & Chips
The key to a top fish and chip joint is the serving size, and Moolanda out in Kingsley are the kings of big portions. Even though it gets crazy busy in there you’ll always be served with a smile, and it won’t cost you an arm and a fin.
Shop 4/127 Moolanda Blvd, Kingsley
You can find Fish Boss in their excellent Vic Park store, and we recommend you get there stat. Their staples are killer, but it’s their second-to-none fish tacos that’ll blow your mind. Trust us.

789 Albany Hwy, East Victoria Park
Don’t let Swannies distance from the ocean turn you off, they’ve got some of the best hookups to the freshest fish in Perth, and treat it with the respect it deserves. Do yourself a favour and grab yourself some of their famous dhufish bites – the popcorn chicken of the sea!
2/21 Dance Dr, Middle Swan
The Jolly Fryer
Another shop not to be judged by how far away the sea is, the excellent pricing is matched only their extensive range of fish. If you’re feeling a little extra naughty – make sure you grab yourself a tub of their special curry sauce – an absolute winner.
22 Haynes St, Kalamunda
This Cottesloe institution recently opened up a new joint in Elizabeth Quay, and it’s not surprising given the no doubt thousands of Indian Ocean sunsets they’ve enhanced over the years. And given the location, the prices are pretty darn even.

28/94 Marine Pde, Cottesloe
Mosman Park Seafoods
Right in the heart of Mossie Park, Mosman Park Seafoods does good, honest fish and chips just right. Decently priced, their grilled options are delish, and always ready to eat super quick.
46 Manning St, Mosman Park
Bringing a love of fresh local produce up from the south coast of WA, Tankk owners Paul and Anna have recently spread the love with a new store in Como to go with their Winthrop flagship. Their online ordering system is super handy, and the ice-cream sandwiches are next level.

Piscari Fish And Chips
Piscari on Hampton Rd in Fremantle is another top shelf takeway fish and chip joint. With over 20 years experience, they’ve tightened their menu up to perfection, with a nice mix of Aussie and NZ fish.
99B Hampden Rd, Fremantle
Redfish in Attadale is the perfect stop for those looking for a bit of dining out action. It’s a little more expensive than your average shop, but worth it for the locally and ethically sourced produce, diverse and delicious menu and variety of different specials each night.

88D Moreing Rd, Attadale
Mt Pleasant Fish And Chips
One of the most popular South Perth seafood slingers, Mt Pleasant Fish And Chips gets pretty busy but is always worth the wait.
89 Glenelg St, Mount Pleasant
Mt Hawthorn Fish And Chips
Mt Hawthorn Fish And Chips have been getting the job done for over 25 years, and with a base level fish and chips only $10, it’s not hard to see why. A nice variety of vego options are also available.
23/148 Scarborough Beach Rd, Mount Hawthorn
